    Tony, Jeanne, Donna and Joe,
    So very sorry to hear about Aunt Ginny. Her and Domio were always the best to me an my family and her and my mom were best friends right up until mom passed. For many years she made me a special cheesecake on my birthday cause she knew it was my favorite.. I always looked forward to that. I and many others will miss her and remember her for the wonderful kind hearted woman she was.

    Jeanne, Ernie and family, I am so sorry to hear about your mom/sister. She was such a beautiful person! I always enjoyed seeing her while she was volunteering or talking with her on the phone. She ALWAYS brought a smile to my face and a good belly laugh, too! I will treasure the memories I have of her and hope memories of her carry you through this difficult time.

Praying for each of you now and in the days ahead. May you find comfort in knowing you were the best part of a life well lived.
    God Bless! 💜

    Ginnie was a wonderful friend. She enjoyed the neighborhood lunch bunch once a month. We will all meet at the heritage memorial garden this summer and plant a bush in her honor. She will be missed by all of us, her friends.

    To the Frucci family ,
    My sincere condolences for the loss of your mom and grandma. She always was the happiest when speaking of, or being with, her family. She was the “biggest fan” for many , including her Detroit Tigers! A friend to many, her loss is huge. She may now Rest In Peace. Love you Ginny❤️
